Comment (by DD32):

 looking around for alternate Zip methods..

 There seems to be 2 main options other than the pure php method, the Zip
 PHP extension, The Zlib extension(must be specifically loaded on linux,
 windows has it compiled in).

 Of course.. Could just use Tar instead, or invent a new compressed format,
 or write a Zip handler from scratch that somehow manages to work around
 integer overflows/limits

 Has anyone else come accross any problems with the plugin upgrading
